This page features a list of services which provide on-demand production (printing
on demand) of books. Many of these companies can
print, bind, and ship one book at a time, although most are more efficient and cost-effective at doing 10 to 100 copies.
We try to be comprehensive in these listings, so we list anyone.
A listing does not necessarily mean a recommendation by us.
Please note that this list is a work in progress. If you know of other companies who should be
added to this list, or any changes in addresses or services, please email John Kremer.
Many wholesalers, distributors, and publishers are now doing on-demand and e-book production on their own. — John Kremer,
